Wasn’t sure where to post this, so hoping this fits in this thread smiley

I am really wanting to design a special tattoo to get in honour of Kylie but I’m not the most creative person blush

So aside from 3 little black paws (the rear left one missing) I’m at a loss!  Do I put her name? Do I add a pic of her pretty smiling face?

Just wondered if any tripawd parents out there have gotten tattoos of their pets who would be willing to share pics, or even if any of you have any creative ideas, I’d love to hear them!!

Thanks!

Chris & Spirit Kylie xo

Try and think of something that “defines” Kylie in picture form.  Something thst would make you smile everytime you look at it.  

  In my Happy Hannah’s case, it wpuld be a tattoo with her holding her food bowl in her mouth.  She taught herself to go get her food bowl and she woukd just prance around with it holding it in her mouth wagging her tail the whole time.  She knew it would make me laugh!!” At some point she would bring it to me, drop it in front of me, and wait for me to put some food in it.  She would est her treats, then pick up her food bowl and take it to her bed 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂   Yep, thst would be my happy memory  smile making tattoo 🙂

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Haha yes I think you need to get that tattoo, of Hannah with the food bowl, Its perfect!!

Well I did design a tattoo to honour Kylie from some ideas I saw on pinterest and on this site.

I just got it done an hour ago! I’m so happy! Its on my foot. I absolutely love it!! Its perfect. Love the 3 paws. I got it on my left foot, the one she was missing.   I miss her so much!!! But at least now she’s stuck with me forever & ever 😉

That is beautiful! What a sweet way to honor Kylie, I’m sure she loves it too 🙂

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Thanks guys! It hurt like hell but it was worth it. I just breathed through the pain & thought back to how much pain she went through with cancer, and it worked. I endured pain for her. Just like I wished I could have done at the time when she was suffering.

Anyway, I wanted to post and share the pic in case others are looking for similar ideas like I was. Anyone is welcome to copy it.

I am really happy with it and I do feel she is with me. Sometimes in very subtle ways but she’s around heart

I’d love to see this picture, but the link isn’t working…could you post again please??

Wife and I are looking to get matching ones to remember Levi this year. I am thinking 3 paws is the way to go, and hope I can see yours. 

Levi was diagnosed w/likely osteosarcoma at 7.5 years old in 7/2015 and became a Tripawd on 9/11/15. Loved life until he broke one of his front legs on 2/12/17. As x-rays showed clean bone, we decided to repair the leg. He recovered well, but in June of 2017, started to limp on the same leg. X-Rays showed return of OSA in the front leg. Levi crossed the rainbow bridge on 7/20/17, after over 22 months as a happy Tripawd.

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"
